New Other mural in Chicago

Street Art // Monday, April 08, 2013
When we think of Other’s work we associate it with trains because it’s where we first saw his monikers and they have always stood out amongst the hoards of other doodles. This new piece by him in Chicago is not on a train, but is of a train. The Canadian artist beautifully painted an old steam engine towing a small log cabin and a multi-colored head in an undisclosed location.

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 28, 2012

Today, we look back on the piece that Brooklyn-based Vizie painted in the Windy City of Chicago, one of the standout, abstract pieces that came from the Wall to Wall project.

Opening: Ryan Travis Christian "The Second Banana" @ Guerrero Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 17, 2012
As we prepare a larger look at Ryan Travis Christian's work in the print magazine, the Chicago-based artist just opened a new solo exhibition, The Second Banana, at Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco. We think of Christian's work as a psychedelic trip animated by an artist in the 1930s. It just has that vintage feel to it. Maybe that is why we like it so much.
